Senate Minority Leader and candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, for Abia South senatorial district, Enyinnaya Abaribe, has described President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration as unfair to non-northern region, NjenjeMediaNews reports.
Abaribe made the assertion on Saturday, while speaking on Arise TV.
He said, “The APC government-led by President Muhammadu Buhari was not fair. He was totally unfair to the people, who are not from what he claims is his own place.”
Abaribe recalled that when Buhari, in 2016, was about to make his appointment, he was the first to raise it on the floor of the Senate that all the men in charge of the nation’s security architecture should not be Muslims and from the North at the same time.
He said, “At the time I was saying that, I was talking for the rest of Nigeria and I will continue to advocate for Nigeria.”
While replying to critics, who had claimed he was not ideological politically, Abaribe said he would have joined the All Progressive Congress if he was not ideologically-inclined.
Araribe’s critics had said he would have remained in the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, and reform the party.
But Abaribe, who defected from the People’s Democratic Party, PDP to APGA, said: “If I was non-ideological I would go to APC.
“If you have the major ideology, it will now be the conservative APC and the progressives non-APC.
“I’m still in the non-APC so I’m ideologically-inclined that I will not be not be part of the hegemony.”
